Shreveport Chapter of Society for Neuroscience

Society for Neuroscience logo

The Society for Neuroscience is an international organization composed of researchers, clinicians, students, and residents in all disciplines of neuroscience. The national website has links to job opportunities, educational resources, and announcements about upcoming conferences. Annually, they host the world's largest conference featuring neuroscience research.



Our local chapter is called the Society for Neuroscience Shreveport chapter. Our nickname is simply NeuroCore. We serve researchers, students, clinicians, and residents in the ArkLaTex and ArkLaMiss regions. We host an annual Neuroscience Day with a nationally recognized speaker and presentations by our own researchers. We also sponsor social events, service opportunities, and professional development activities. Please join and grow with us.
